All Saints' Day today. A memorable occasion, as Keith and Vanessa announced their engagement during refreshments at the end of the service, much to everyone's delight. Four weeks after a hip operation, one of our very special welcomers was back on duty giving out books, adding to the good cheer of the occasion. At the meeting of the Friends of St John after Evensong, we discussed the Advent Sunday Parish lunch, an occasion when we hope all regular congregation members will dine out together at a local eaterie. We're very good at DIY occasions, but every now and then it's good that we all sit down and enjoy each other's company and someone else's good food.
